We are the largest local authority landlord in London and the second largest in the country, managing 55,000 homes lived in by 40% of Southwark’s residents. We have a young, diverse and growing population. And we stand together.


At Southwark, we’re committed to making our borough just and fair, and taking positive action to tackle inequalities. Our residents and our communities are our greatest asset, and we are determined to ensure they have safe homes to thrive in. As a council, we are nationally recognised as an exemplar on building safety and homelessness prevention and our residents highly value the housing services they receive. We are successfully delivering on our council house building programme with over 700 new homes on site.

As a critical member of the corporate leadership team, our new Strategic Director will share our deep-seated commitment to working with residents to deliver change and improve lives. Your determination and passion to deliver outstanding services in this new era for housing will enhance Southwark’s national reputation as a great social landlord.
